Lilja 6.5 Creedmoor Drop In AR308 Barrels

When it comes to rifle barrels they can often be separated into different classes of performance. The top level performers are what I refer to as “No Excuses Barrels”. Lilja is one of the small handful of custom barrel manufactures producing these no excuses barrels for winning competitive shooters world wide. More importantly Lilja Rifle Barrels was named exclusive supplier for .30 caliber Mk13, Mod 7, and .50 caliber Mk15 barrels for the Navy SEALS. Lilja is now offering benchrest level performance 6.5 Creedmoor drop in barrels for 308 AR/AR308 shooters. They are available in 20″, 24″ fluted and unfluted.

We are offering an AR type barrel chambered for the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridges. These are available in four styles and all are completely finished drop-in type barrels. They are finish-chambered and have a DPMS style barrel extension installed and the gas port hole drilled for a rifle-length gas system. They also are threaded 5/8″ – 24 at the muzzle. These barrels are not compatible with the Armalite or Rock River Arms rifles.

All versions of this stainless steel AR-type barrel are chambered with a PTG semi-auto match reamer. These barrels are rifled with our 8″ twist 3-groove. These barrels are also hand-lapped to our internal finish standards. The section forward of the gas block section is engraved: “Lilja AR 6.5 Creedmoor” The barrel extensions are a DPMS type and these barrels will headspace properly with DPMS type bolts. The gas block and gas port holes are positioned for standard rifle length gas tubes.
